Pacquiao has dedicated his fight with Rios to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. The boxing legend has relatives who are among those whose lives have been destroyed.
The Filipino icon hopes to lift his homeland by beating Rios in Macau in his first fight since losing to Juan Manuel Marquez 11 months ago.
"When I saw the news of the typhoon I was crying," he said, according to Daily Mail. "I felt so bad with what happened. After the fight, I'll be going there with more relief goods. I have relatives there. They're alive, but they lost their homes, everything.
"This has given me more inspiration and determination to win. I'm dedicating this fight to the families and people affected by the typhoon."
On Dec. 8 of last year, eight-weight champion Pacquiao was knocked out in the sixth-round by Juan Manuel Marquez in a Las Vegas match. "Some people think he's done," said Somodio, assistant to Pacquiao's coach Freddie Roach, the USA Today reported, "but some people who really know him, they think he's going to bounce back."
